If you don't walk away from this class completely inspired and excited about your new skills while embracing the everyday ease of cooking whole food plant-based meals without a recipe, the course is free.


This program was designed by me, Patty "Sassy" Knutson, a long-time Vegan Coach and plant-based home cook.

On-the-fly improvisational cooking is what we've always taught in all of our courses and across our entire VeganCoach.com website. And this vegan cooking course will teach you the steps to making recipe-free cooking work day in and day out -- from the time you head into your grocery store to shop all the way through plating and garnishing your very own unique homemade vegan dish.





Solving the 6 Main Challenges Most Plant-Based Home Cooks Face

Cooking With Sass! was created to help you overcome these problems our students encounter on a regular basis.

Does Any Of This Sound Familiar To YOU?


  • Getting stuck in ruts while making the same dishes over and over;
  • Spending too much money buying expensive ingredients for recipes (that many times you only use once);
  • Filling your diet with overly processed, unhealthy and fattening convenience foods;
  • Having little knowledge of how to "fix" a recipe that sucks lollipops;
  • Spending too much time finding recipes, listing ingredients and long involved shopping trips;
  • Wasting food that has gone bad before you had a chance to use it!

And this just scratches the surface!

But fear not. Because we're here to help you move from this place of confusion and overwhelm, to creating seasonal, nutritious and super tasty whole food plant-based meals on-the-fly so you can get in and out of the kitchen (and on with life!).

Our Students Will Inspire You With Their Success Stories

YOU can do this, too!

It warms me to my kissers to hear from my students how this class has REVOLUTIONIZED the way they prepare their whole food plant-based everyday meals. Check out some of my favorite stories...


BEFORE
  • Had no knowledge of cooking freestyle
  • Had zero comfort cooking without a recipe
  • Extremely curious if she could pull it off
AFTER
  • Knows how to season her meals now
  • Can walk through the produce section, pick what looks good to her and find a way to make a dish out of it
  • Comfortable substituting ingredients and knowing what flavors are needed



Sandra N., Cooking With Sass student

"Since taking this class, I feel confident and am beginning to prefer meatless meals. And not just meatless...learning flavors and how to cook without oil have been real eye openers! Loved the seasonal produce chart and flavoring lessons. Also attention to garnish and texture. These things gave me confidence to be recipe free. Chef Sassy's passion for cooking and creation is infectious. Feedback is positive but videos push us to think outside the box."


Sandra N.
Sparks, Nevada




BEFORE
  • Could put a vegan meal together but always wondered what to make for dinner
  • Always looking for the "perfect" recipe
  • Unaware of how to balance flavors in her meals
AFTER
  • Uses up what's in her fridge to create dishes from what's on hand
  • Discovered new ways to use up leftovers (as well as new ideas for using tofu and tempeh)
  • Can make a vegan meal in a few minutes and make it nutritional (especially with cooked greens)



Rosanne F., Cooking With Sass student

"Before I took this class, I could put a vegan meal on the table with some planning ahead and a chunk of time. Now, I can take what's available and make a vegan meal in a few minutes. This course saves you time and money, along with helping you keep on track for eating a nutritional plant-based diet without using processed foods. And the videos are always a nice surprise — we never know what Sass is going come up with next."


Rosanne F.
Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania




BEFORE
  • Knowledge and experience was limited and usually turned to recipes
  • Doesn't know anyone else that is a vegan cook so hasn't had the opportunity to watch someone else cook a whole food plant-based meal
  • Used to stop on the way home from work for special ingredients for recipes
AFTER
  • Considers what she might make for dinner out of what she already has at home
  • Looks at recipes for inspiration and ideas, but now willing to go way off course to customize the recipe
  • Has learned how to create a meal on the fly, create a sauce, add complex flavors, and how to have fun being creative instead of relying on a recipe



Cheri M., Cooking With Sass student

"I have a lot of spices, condiments, vinegars, that I have not used that much. Cooking without recipes has taught me the value of all of those items and also how to use them to really maximize the flavor of foods. I had no idea how much I would be participating and how valuable the participation (and feedback) from the other students would be for my growth."

Janie G, Cooking With Sass student

"My level of confidence in the kitchen has risen enormously with CWS. I'm more adventurous with my ingredients and flavors. I'm more conscious of not only how a dish tastes but also its eye appeal. I especially love the videos. Watching you create delicious food from humble beginnings is a true delight for me. I also really enjoy all the dishes from the other students. No matter the skill level or vegan experience, the results are always amazing."


Janie G.
Canton, Georgia

Teryl, Cooking With Sass student

"I think most people would benefit from the concepts and practice of flexible use of ingredients, learning about flavor matches, balancing tastes, trying creative combinations, how to avoid wasting fresh foods, and easy shopping and in-the-moment meal planning."


Teryl L.
La Conner, Washington

Mary Jean K., Cooking With Sass student

"Loved the class feedback and participation and the other students' freedom in sharing. I learned way more than I anticipated. Sassy is a great teacher and was so interested in all we were doing. She takes so very much of her time helping us all the way through."

Daryl L., Cooking With Sass student

"I LOVE watching you cook, and the commentary too!! These cooking videos just bring EVERYTHING you're telling us together so CLEARLY!!! ....I LOVE THEM!!!....They are EXTRAORDINARILY INSPIRING!!!!.....I AM so excited because I made my FIRST TOTALLY IMPROVISATIONAL RECIPE-FREE DISH IN NEARLY 27 YEARS last night!!!!.....I wasn't even SCARED beforehand (NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT!!!)....rather, I was EXCITED!!!!!!!.....and I actually had FUN, FUN, FUUUUUUUUUNNNNNN!!!!!!! THANK YOU ENDLESSLY for what you're doing.....you are CHANGING our lives, for the better, every single day. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!"


Daryl L.
Seaford, Delaware


Nancy M., Cooking With Sass student

"This class is so much fun! There are so many different ideas to share. And I love reading all the comments from other students. I have to say this class, seeing you cook, then issuing challenges has really changed my approach to cooking. Even if you aren't vegan, you learn so much about ingredients, how to season a dish, how to cook them, how to take random ingredients and make a delicious satisfying meal without being a slave to a recipe. Looking forward to our next challenge!!! This course far exceeded my expectations."


Nancy M.
Stockbridge, Georgia


Londa R., Cooking With Sass student

"Before this class, I was not comfortable about relying only on my vegan cooking to survive! This course forced me to experiment with seasonings and flavorings. I learned from you how to sauté with little or no oil, encouraged to pressure cook and use the blender for sauces. This course has made me excited about cooking vegan. My favorite part is about flavoring; because it intrigues me. I have always wondered how chefs come up with such amazing flavors in their dishes. You put an amazing course together; I did not expect to learn so much. This course is labor intensive as well as mentally challenging. I learned a lot about cooking in general as well as vegan cooking. And, I did not expect to have so much fun reading the comments from all of the students."


Londa R.
Sacramento, California


David K., Cooking With Sass student

"I've learned a lot about cooking since becoming vegan 4.5 years ago, but almost all recipe based. In this class, I learned how to start from scratch with seasonal vegetables, come up with a cooking style and plan, use flavor matching to flavor the dish and balance the flavors, and how to make a sauce and appropriate garnish. I love how the knowledge I gained has extended my meal prep abilities. I loved the feedback and new ideas from Sassy and my classmates. I loved the way Sassy structured the course and built upon our knowledge gained in previous lessons."

What Are Your Other Options?

If You Continue Cooking Your Everyday Meals WITH Recipes You'll Probably...



  • Spend a lot of time researching recipes in cookbooks and magazines and all over the web;
  • Spend too much money buying convenience foods from the frozen food section;
  • Run out of time and stop off for take-out or order food in -- expensive and unhealthy!
  • Take a long time to advance your cooking skills -- one recipe at a time is very time consuming;
  • Get bored, making the same meals you know over and over again;
  • Get burned out on the whole rigamarole of recipe research, ingredient lists and long and involved grocery trips.

Guys, recipes serve a very special purpose. They can help you to improve your skills, discover new herbs/spices and learn new cooking skills.

But for EVERYDAY cooking, you'll want to learn all you can about how to pull a meal together on-the-fly with very little advance planning. It just makes sense for busy people (like most of us!).

Questions about Cooking With Sass!

Q: Is this course appropriate for new Vegans?
A: This is an advanced vegan cooking course. You should have a solid idea of the basics of a vegan diet such as how to cook beans or how to cook veggies. We'll simply show you in THIS course how we pull it all together into everyday recipe-free dishes.

Q: "I have taken many courses from others, some quite expensive, and have not made much progress. How will your class be different?"
A: It's hard for me to answer that, quite honestly, because I don't know which courses you have taken or what they included in their Lessons. In Cooking With Sass!, we'll cover every step of creating a recipe-free vegan meal, from selecting the ingredients to plating and garnishing. We'll also cover seasoning and flavoring at length so you can begin to get a really solid idea of this MOST important aspect of cooking without recipes. If you've ever taken any of our courses before where we cover flavoring just know that this course will go above and beyond anything else we've taught.

Each week brings a new cooking challenge, too! So you can put what you're learning into practice, post your homework (edible!) and get feedback from myself and the rest of the class.

Each week also includes a video showing me hopping into my kitchen to make a recipe-free meal on the spot with what I have on hand. These are NOT scripted or rehearsed. Simply showing you what I found in my local market on my last shopping trip and how I incorporated it into my meal. I can promise you this: Every video will be completely different because I'll have different ingredients on hand each week so there will never be the same meal shown twice.

This is a living, breathing course so our students can tell us what they need to help them move forward and we can do our best to deliver in a future Lesson -- within reason.   ;)

Q: What time of day will the cooking classes start?
A: The class will be held in our online classroom just as all of our other courses are. Each course begins whenever it's convenient for you after you've completed your enrollment. New content – whether text, audio, video, downloadable documents or discussions – will be available each week. I’ll notify you by e-mail when new lessons are ready, and you can follow the links directly into our online space.

Q: Will I be able to access the class any time?
A: You can participate at any time you wish, when it's convenient for you! No worries about scheduling, or living in different time zones.

Q: How do I know if this course will fit into my schedule?
A: Each week you will receive an email to notify you that a new Lesson is ready to be viewed. You can simply visit our virtual classroom whenever you have the time (and the head space!) to concentrate and get the most out of each Lesson.

Q: How long will I have access to the course?
A: You will own the course and can access it at any time. There is no expiration date.

Q: What is your refund policy?
A: With your purchase of Cooking With Sass! you receive my personal money-back guarantee so you can feel as confident as I am that you'll love this online course. If at any time you feel you did not get your money's worth, then you can request a full refund. I want you to be happy!   :)

Q: I have some questions about the course. Is there anyone I can talk to?
A: Yes! Ask below in our Facebook commenting section or shoot me an email through our Contact form. Or you can click here to Chat w/the Coach. Sign up for an available 20-minute time slot, and I'll give you a call to answer any questions you have about the class OR help you determine which of our courses would be a better fit for your current needs and plant-based skill level. Thanks!


Let's play!



Heart with quotes

Before we go, take a peek at more comments about this class from our beloved students:

"Before this course, I ONLY used recipes from my hundreds-of-cookbook collection. I have much more confidence now and really can cook recipe-free. It is the BEST way to learn how to free-style cook and also to learn about the vegan diet."
-- Lynne D.


"Before Coooking With Sass! I felt terrible about recipe-free cooking. VERY uncomfortable! Zero confidence! I had no knowledge of the whys and hows...the science of cooking. Of course I could follow a recipe...but free-hand!?! NO WAY! I was very nervous to have anyone taste my food for fear they would not like it! I felt very insecure! Sassy, you have given me something no recipe ever could give me. That is...CONFIDENCE! Just 12 short weeks ago, I NEVER could have waltzed into my kitchen and just made up dishes like this! And, had FUN, to boot! Yes! I HAVE learned in this class! I can't imagine what I will feel after our next seasonal class!?! But, I look forward to it so much! Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime! Thank you Sassy!"
-- Shirley M.


"Best course ever to learn no recipe cooking with entertaining and very helpful videos."
-- Beverly U.


"I just turned 53 and for the first time in my life I feel a type of freedom in the kitchen that I never felt before! So creative, so healthy, so economical (no waste), so tasty. Even my husband and son here are being amazed. Thanks to you."
-- Carol M.
